Here are some more flowers blooming away at the moment. Above is Erythronium Pagoda (Dog's Tooth Violet) which is looking lovely, with the lampshade-like flowers held on delicate stems.
Looking up into the Erythronium flowers which also captured the beautiful blue sky we had at the weekend.
Magnolia Liliflora 'Susan' has also got lots of flowers open and lots more to come.
My first tulips are nearly there.
I think the mixture of colours is going to be really cheerful.
Slightly less cheerful, in fact, a little sombre are the flowers of the Snake's Head Fritillary. I planted a few bulbs in small pots last autumn and here's the result. The chequerboard pattern is really amazing.
It does look as though they have been purposely coloured in.
The inside of the flower is also beautifully patterned - with clearly defined runways for any passing bees. I am really enjoying my daily walk around the garden (being small, it doesn't take long) as at the moment, there seems to be something new to look at each day.
